Brazilian beauty influencer Nubia Cristina Braga has been killed in an attack by gunmen on motorcycles who fled the scene later. Braga was found dead in her house at Santa Maria neighborhood of Aracaju on the night of October 14, Jam Press reported. She had just returned from an appointment at a hair salon, an account of which she had detailed in her last Instagram story.
